Reconstructed Walloon church in New Paltz, New York, in what was once New Netherland.

A Walloon church (French: Église Wallonne; Dutch: Waalse kerk) describes any Calvinist church in the Netherlands and its former colonies whose members originally came from the Southern Netherlands and France and whose native language is French. Members of these churches belong to the Walloon Reformed Church (French: Réformé wallon; Dutch: Waals Hervormd or, prior to 1815, Waals Gereformeerd), a denomination of the long-distinguished Dutch-speaking Dutch Reformed Church.
